How To Offend God

Posted by on Jun 5, 2013 in General | 0 comments

Every morning I watch the sun rise (weather permitting). The beauty of it demands a response. More often than not, the conversation below ensues: Me: Wow, Father God, that’s just…breathtaking. You’re amazing. God: I knew you’d like it. Do you know I love you? Me: Yes, I know you love me. I love you too. God: Do you know how much I love you? It is at this point that the conversation takes one of three paths. Path 1 I quickly evaluate how I’ve done over the past several days and determine that I’ve managed to put together a good...

If Margins Could Talk

I must have been grinning like a kid in a candy store. As I unlocked the door to the radio station run by a college in the town where I grew up, I was still trying to grasp what I would be doing in a couple of days. I could hardly believe that, despite being a mid-teen, I was about to get the opportunity to be a DJ for a week while the college student DJs were on Spring break. It was now after 10pm, so the station was off the air, and the manager had given me the keys so I could practice without getting in anyone’s way. Earlier that...

eBook Is Now Available

The eBook version of Rude Awakening is now available! It is being offered on Amazon at a special, introductory price of $0.99 (yes, 99 cents). There are some individual pages in the book that are worth more than that, but I set the price there because getting the message of this book out is far more important that whatever I make on it. Don’t have an eReader? Amazon has FREE Kindle apps for your PC, Mac or phone. Other eBook formats (for Nook and iPad) will be available soon.   write my essay for me discount...

Voting Your Conscience? Not So Fast.

Posted by on Jun 2, 2012 in General | 0 comments

I’ve heard people admonish others with, “Don’t vote with your pocketbook, don’t vote based on what others say, don’t be influenced by social pressure, just vote your conscience.” That sounds good, but there is one very big flaw in that approach: What if your conscience is not sensitive enough to be relied upon? What if it has been seared? The Bible says in 1 Timothy 4:1-2 “…in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking...
